Sharing Photos - Help!

New member | Level 2

Someone sent me a link for a public shared dropbox, so we can all add photos from our event. I can't figure out how to upload my photos?

The only options I see are to downloads the current photos in there, or to save them to my Drop Box. Any help?

Hey @sam110!
If this is a shared link, you won’t be able to add content to the folder as a shared link provides you with view-only permissions. 
To be able to upload files to the folder, you need to ask the owner to either invite you to it as a shared folder and give you editing rights, or send you a file request to it.
Hope this helps to some extent!
